Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, We don’t have to be at the mercy of our inner negative voice! It’s amazing how much we talk to ourselves negatively and we don’t realise it’s our voice. We assume that the thoughts we have are real and even worse, we conjure up thoughts of ill will of those that aren’t even in the room. Our inner voice, if it’s not disciplined can ruin our… Read More

Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, Don’t be yesterday’s hero, stay current. All to often, individuals get stuck in a time they believed was their peak. Perhaps it was a time where everything seemed to be working well. Relationships were strong, money was not an object or a hindering factor, opportunity was everywhere. For me it was in my early thirties. I was an Evangelist for a world wide organisation. I was… Read More

As a seasoned public speaker, social media and blog writer, I have always been aware of the impact words have to our own mental well-being. Most can’t see past the desire we have to be an encouragement to others. When we step out to influence, encourage or teach, the speaker or writer taps into the endorphins in the same way an athlete does. The better we are at our chosen field of… Read More

Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, Why pray and not expect a reply? In my forty year faith journey, hardly a day has gone by when I haven’t prayed. Yet in all my prayers there has been innumerable times my prayers were out of habit and not out of expectation. The older I get the more I pray on purpose. My hope is to be in synch with my creator rather than… Read More

Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, Not seeing our own face in the mirror, The travesty of distractions. We learn to communicate for two things, survival and meaning. From the urge of eating and basic comfort to more the sophisticated art of being reflective around the meaning of life, communication is imperative. We accept it when children behave in basic forms of, ‘I want’ but most of us get a little frustrated… Read More

Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, When we talk about forgiveness in the modern world, we have to recognise what forgiveness isn’t. Forgiveness isn’t a weak attempt to move on from hurt or someone’s failures. Forgiveness isn’t an avoidance of real or fabricated incidents. Forgiveness is a gutsy realisation of pain, confusion and roadblocks that need to be addressed by two or more parties. Psychologists generally define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate… Read More

Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, Networks that flourish. It’s always about drawing the right people together. Beware of the birds, rocks, and thorn type. In thousands of years, it is clear that human beings haven’t evolved much when it comes to types of people. The idea of creating a flourishing network or community is as old as time. In modern days we use catch cries like ‘Finding our tribe’ or terms… Read More

Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, A mothers love is too hard to describe, but I’ll try. When I think of the way the world is often described as ‘Mother Nature’ or a place of one’s origin as ‘Motherland’, these are terms of endearment and deep felt emotion of respect and belonging. It was Abraham Lincoln who honoured his own mother, saying “All that I am or hope to be, I owe… Read More

Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, Leadership; embellished and over-talked; under demonstrated; largely misunderstood. It’s often the ones that lead that aren’t recognised and those that seek recognition of leadership, just don’t lead. With catch phrases like ‘Being led up the garden path’, meaning someone has wasted our time and energy or has deceived us through their influence. It’s not a surprise many don’t like the thought of being led. Leadership is… Read More

Welcome to another episode of TOMCAST, The ancient facilitator. A wedding planners nightmare. A calling to create the greatest experience for all participants. There is nothing better than a well orchestrated event, yet few appreciate all the behind the scenes effort to create it. In the modern world of shallow experiences, we hardly appreciate what a real event looks, feels and tastes like. As a result of not appreciating the outcome of… Read More
